Thanks, had the computer replaced today. I hope it solves the shifting problem. I will follow up once it's done. Have a good night.

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

I'll admit I haven't been through all 900+ posts to check, but has it been mentioned that a lot of the XK suspension can be swapped to the WK? I believe the springs are a slight lift, and I know they have the SRT sway bars and hardware. Not so sure if the shocks are any good...

I'm planning on putting road magnets on OEM bilsteins. That setup will go on my 08 Laredo

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

so the cheapest and the lowest I can go is with the bwoody and the wk bilstein correct? I can't believe the srt8 stocks are $700+. Has nothing aftermarket come out that is better yet?

The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Quick question. I plan on swapping out my shocks and sruts on my 08 Laredo for a set of used Srt bilsteins and new roadmagnets. Also putting front and rear sway bars on. Would i need to replace anything else? I know my brother did very similar mods to his 05 Laredo and he had to get new control arms. Can i get away with all the other stock suspension parts? Or would it just be best/smart to upgrade everything at once? If anyone has any suggestions i'd love to hear them, thanks!

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Has anybody installed european Bilsteins?:
24-132725 (Front)
24-132732 (Rear)
Are those closer to SRT Bilsteins or standard WK in damping rates?

Re: The complete (05-10) WK Grand Cherokee suspension thread

Just an observation. I installed the SRT front sway bar and when i took off the original I was shocked to see how similar they were. They looked the exact same and had the same thickness. I am the second owner so it is possible the first owner upgraded the front sway...but i doubt it. Just wanted to throw that out there lol
